Walliams vs The Thames

This is a bit of a cheat as none of these photos where taken by me. Colin braved the awful weather today and went down to the stretch of River between our village and Oxford. However, David Walliams was much braver as he was swimming that stretch of river as part of the BBC's Big Sports Relief Big Splash Challenge David is hoping to swim 140 miles in 8 days. That man certainly knows how to challenge himself!!!

Small cats photo shoot.

These are just a small selection of the photos that I took at a Small Cats photography workshop that I attended on the 21st July. The workshop was held at The Cat Survival Trust, a voluntary and charitable organization devoted to the conservation and preservation of wild cats.
The workshop was taken by John from Photographers on Safari.
The whole day was an experience I will never forget, it was so well organised and informative with great opportunities to get some really up close and memorable photos. The whole day was topped off with a surprise appearance of a Snow Leopard cub, she was just 7 weeks old and was one of a litter of three cubs born at the Cat Survival Trusts twelve acre site in Hertfordshire.
To be up close and be able to carefully stroke such an amazing creature is a once in a lifetime moment.
For most my photographs I used my Canon 400D and a 70mm to 300mm Canon lens. The shots of the Snow Leopard cub were taken using a Canon 100mm Macro lens.
For the last four photographs I used my point and shoot camera, a Panasonic Lumix TZ10 on the Macro Zoom setting!

This Snow Leopard cub will eventully get this big!
Oblivious to the all the wasps around this Snow Leopard enjoyed a mid afternoon snack.



This shot was a lot nearer to the Leopard than I thought!
Certainly made me jump back a few feet!
I hope you have enjoyed looking at just a few photos from my day.
